I was inspired by John Keonig’s “Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows” while creating this image. From that dictionary I came across “Kairosclerosis” which Keonig explains as savouring the feeling of being happy. How would you describe happy? I chose this image as you cannot see the models face. Is she happy as she runs towards the freezing cold waves of the ocean? Will she regret it as her toes hit the water? She may even second guess her decision and turn back. Or does the thrill of it encourage her to keep running? I can confirm that she continued running further and further into it’s depths. She turns around with a smile on face, laughing as her body awakens to the temperature of the water. She was happy.
